A light haze of smoke was coming from the building. Most of the fire had been extinguished by the sprinkler system. There were no reported injuries.

Firefighters remained on scene for several hours to make sure the fire was out and to perform salvage and overhaul, Sancic said. There was no immediate information on what was stored in the warehouse. The cause of the fire was under investigation.
